Will have to look into the Fryette amps, the deliverance or similar is kind of the dream right now: a single-channel players amp that shows instead of hides I got the chance to play a vengeance once and wasn't particularly impressed, but was far less concerned about this sort of thing back then. Also I was in a guitar center and couldn't really put any volume on it. Will have to give it another shot when I get the chance. One of my axes is a single-coil tele tuned to drop A if that tells you anything, but yeah every orange I've ever played has been super fuzzy sounding. I've always really loved the tones other people got from them though. (never had the chance to play one of those cranked either :sad: ) Hadn't heard of Roccaforte or Mako, and can't find much on their websites. Are they still in business?
